Lions placed P Ben Graham (calf) on injured reserve, ending his season.

Graham actually suffered the injury prior to his first punt of last week's game that resulted in a 65-yard touchdown. Turning 39 in November, Graham had averaged 41.3 yards on six punts this season.

Lions punter Ben Graham left Sunday's game against the Titans with a left calf injury and did not return.

Graham was injured while covering the Titans' Tommie Campbell 65-yard punt return touchdown. Kicker Jason Hanson was forced to come in and punt in place of Graham.

Lions re-signed P Ben Graham to a one-year contract.

Graham averaged 44.1 yards on 28 punts after taking over for Ryan Donahue (quad) in November. The two will likely compete for punting duties this summer.

Lions signed P Ben Graham, formerly of the Cardinals.

The former Aussie Rules player was replaced by Dave Zastudil in Arizona this year. Graham has a career average of 44.2 yards on 434 punts.

Cardinals released P Ben Graham.

Graham was brought back last week with Dave Zastudil battling inflammation in his knee. The Cardinals must be confident that Zastudil will be just fine after the Week 6 bye.
Tue, Oct 11, 2011 05:34:00 PM

Cardinals re-signed P Ben Graham.

The 37-year-old Graham is needed because Dave Zastudil is dealing with inflammation in his knee, and has struggled. Graham was Arizona's punter last season. He could supplant Zastudil with a strong effort against the Vikings.
Wed, Oct 5, 2011 01:34:00 PM

Cardinals agreed to terms with P Ben Graham.

Graham averaged a net of just 36.6 yards per punt last season, 21st in the NFL. But that's apparently good enough for the Cardinals, who bring back Graham for his third season in the desert.
Tue, Jul 26, 2011 11:35:00 PM

Free agent punter and Australia native Ben Graham will punt for his country at the International Federation of American Football world championships this July.

Graham started every game for the Cardinals the past two seasons, but his net punting average of 36.6 was just 21st in the NFL in 2010. Now 37, he could have a hard time landing a new contract this offseason.
Sat, May 14, 2011 12:55:00 PM

Cardinals re-signed P Ben Graham to a two-year contract.

The former Aussie Rules player upgraded Arizona's punting game after the Dirk Johnson debacle. Graham has a huge leg, but his hang time has been shakier with age. The 35-year-old probably isn't a long-term solution.
Mon, Mar 2, 2009 05:27:00 PM

Cardinals signed P Ben Graham, formerly of the Saints.

The 35-year-old Aussie is now on his third team this season after brief stints with the Jets and Saints. He can punt it long, but not very high.
Mon, Dec 1, 2008 05:43:00 PM

Saints released P Ben Graham.

Graham played in just one game for the Saints and averaged 42 yards on three punts. The team will search for a new punter and kicker during its bye.
Tue, Oct 28, 2008 08:21:00 PM

Saints signed P Ben Graham, formerly of the Jets.

Graham, a former Australian Football League punter, will make his Saints debut on Sunday in London, England. He replaces Steve Weatherford.
Mon, Oct 20, 2008 02:42:00 PM

Jets released P Ben Graham and re-signed OL Will Montgomery.

The Jets will go with P Reggie Hodges, whose hamstring is healthy now. Graham can boom punts, but doesn't get enough hang time on them.
Mon, Sep 29, 2008 05:32:00 PM

Jets re-signed P Ben Graham.

Graham swallows his pride after the Jets tried replacing him last week with Reggie Hodges. Hodges got hurt in practice, so Graham's back in the fold.
